John Stamos mourns his beloved German shepherd in sweet post

John Stamos already has our hearts, so now he'll just have to have our tears, too.

The "Fuller House" actor posted a sweet photo with his dog Linka on Instagram on Wednesday, indicating in his comments that she had recently passed.

She was always there, especially in the dark times. Never judging. By my side. Only loyal. #rip Linka

German shepherd Linka was a frequent visitor to the Instagram account, often appearing with Stamos as he frolicked around the pool.

He once joked to Us Weekly about keeping the details about his dog private: "I have a dog that I love a lot but I don't talk about her publicly. She's very sensitive when it comes to press."

Fortunately, Stamos recently brought a new furry friend into the family named Freida, so they'll be able to remember her together.

Um... sorry? #jonasblizzardLA
